Former Bafana Skipper Recalls Madiba Advice

Former Bafana Bafana skipper, Aaron Mokoena, has revealed the advice given to him by the late former president of South Africa and much revered world statesman, Nelson Mandela. With the country and much of the world in mourning for the beloved icon of peace and forgiveness, the 33-year-old Mokoena recalled the words of wisdom given to him by Madiba before the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Mokoena has been without a club since leaving Wits at the end of last season, although speculation still appears to exist linking him with a potential move to Kaizer Chiefs.

Before his last season with Wits, Mbazo enjoyed largely successful spells with Ajax Amsterdam, Germinal Beerschot, Genk, Blackburn Rovers and Portsmouth in Europe. He also made 107 appearances for the national team with his one international goal coming for Bafana against Zambia in 2006.

Mokoena told the Siya crew, "The best advice I got from Madiba was in the 2010 World Cup. He said once you are a leader then you are the first person to get shot if things doesn't go well. You are also the first person to get credit if things do go well. What you must be able to do is to be prepared in case things don't go well. Do what you believe in. Do what you think is right for your followers. From there you'll achieve positive results."

Chiefs Decide Against Mokoena?
